Gamestop will be hosting its first commercial expo event this year, on August 29, in San Antonio, Texas. The show was previously only open to GameStop managers, essentially a conference to ensure their managers, DMs, RMs, and buyers were fully up to speed on forthcoming games. Now, the event will also welcome any member of the public who holds a GameStop PowerUp Reward card.
From the Official Expo Site:
For the first time ever, PowerUp Rewards members are invited to attend the annual GameStop conference for a one-day sneak peek at upcoming new video games before they’re ever available to the general public. Get your ticket now for this fantastic opportunity to see more than 200,000 square feet of this year’s hottest video games from the industry’s top publishers, such as Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony, Activision, EA and dozens more!
In this five-hour EXPO, you’ll experience the hottest new video games months before they’re released, check out and play your favorite games, enter for chances to win great prizes in drawings from your favorite video game publishers, and enjoy special celebrity appearances and autograph signings.
Regular tickets are available for $35, with VIP entry costing $100 per person. Further details are available at the official website.
